Exit Paul?

Pellegrini to raid Old Lady?

Manuel Pellegrini, or perhaps his successor at Manchester City, is to ‘swoop’ for Juventus’ in-demand Paul Pogba.

The Mirror report that the Premier League club are willing to fork out £50m to secure the Frenchman’s services.

But they face stiff competition as Chelsea, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are all sniffing about.

Nerazzurri are Inter Yaya

Inter Milan are keen to help City make room for Pogba by taking Yaya Toure off their hands, report the Telegraph.

The problem with signing the Ivorian is that his wages are astronomical, especially in the context of Serie A budgets.

To make the deal work for them, the Milan club would want the player for free. We’re sure City will agree to this, because it’s all about Inter…

Palermo looking to Dybala their money

The Guardian claim that the future of Palermo’s brilliant forward Paulo Dybala will be decided in the next two weeks.

The 21-year-old has netted 13 Serie A goals this season, but turned down a contract extension with the Sicilian club in January.

This is good news for Chelsea, who are hugely keen on the player, but then so are Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.
